Aaron: Grand Cru
Barleywine-style Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Aaron A. Hill (1785-1869) was Edward’s great-grandfather, who operated the original tavern in North Greensboro, upon whose earliest sign our logo is based, and whose memory we honor with our barleywine-style ale.
As with other ancestral expressions, we may rarely discover a single barrel whose journey and resultant character most closely embodies our envisioned form for its namesake beer. This edition of Aaron, our barleywine-style ale, rested for nearly three years in a single Bourbon barrel, harmonizing in time and place, and then conditioned in the bottle for more than two years. To such a fortuitous discovery, we grant the moniker Grand Cru, representing our most optimistic realization of intention, patience, and the whim of wood.
